 Metal thieves are a major problem these days.  In their pursuit of copper (although they will steal anything metallic) they create thousands of dollars of damage for the few dollars they will receive at the salvage yard for their "take".

Sadly, we have to respond and make their activity more difficult.  Here are two cages we have had constructed.  One surrounding a pumping station with panel, pump, and filters all enclosed.  The other just protecting a pump motor.

Our Stanislaus County Sheriff, Adam Christianson, has spoken at community events where I have heard him repeatedly say, "Lock it down, nail it down, chain it down, weld it down, tie it down" etc. or risk losing it.
